For as long as I been a dog parent, I’ve always made a habit taking my dog socializing at places beyond the park and beach as often as possible. Places like the neighborhood shops or my favorite, dinning at Yappy Hours to help benefit animal welfare in your community is always a great way to get social with the pup. It’s important for your dog to get that type of stimulation to better help enhance their public behavior skills, but most importantly, it’s fun for them! That said I wanted to share about a cool and adorable event being held at The Wine Pub benefiting Canine Companions for Independence I hope you will attend. .
On Sunday, August 14, from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m., The Wine Pub will roll out the red carpet (literally) and paparazzi will photograph dozens of San Diego’s socialite pups and their humans. Four-legged friends in tuxes and dresses will enjoy an evening of pampering at The Pub, complete with bottle-bowl service and gourmet doggie treats, including dishes of chicken and wild rice, “pupsicles” and homemade, all-natural dog treats.
“As a puppy owner, I know exactly how much joy four-legged friends bring into our lives,” said Sandy Hanshaw, owner of The Wine Pub. “Our patio is dog-friendly all year round, but for one day we wanted to give our pups center stage and raise money for a local organization that pairs people with disabilities with loyal and loving companions.”
The Oceanside-based organization, Canine Companions for Independence, enhances the lives of people with disabilities by providing highly trained assistance dogs and ongoing support to ensure life-saving human-pup partnerships, free of charge. The Wine Pub chose Canine Companions as its 2016 Woofer Wednesday beneficiary and has donated $250 to date by encouraging customers to dine in with their dogs every Wednesday and giving 10 percent of each check to the dog-friendly nonprofit. No tickets are required for the VIP event – just a fancy dress code for people and their pups!
Can’t wait to see all the cool looks the pups will be styling, as Jack will be sure to be sporting his satin red bow tie. He really is such a ham when it comes to the camera’s and I’m so thankful for the laughter he and his furry friends provide me on a daily basis. See you guys at The Wine Pub, Sunday!
